With more than one billion photons from the whole sky, accumulated in the 100MeV–100GeV band since 2008, the Fermi Large Area Telescope offers the most precious vault for high-energy gamma-ray astrophysics. This unique database was used to study thousands of gamma-ray sources of very different nature, from our own Galaxy to distant and active galactic nuclei. Leveraging the excellent stability of the Large Area Telescope detectors, which operate with no performance degradation since launch, and on improved event analyses that extend the LAT sensitivity below 100MeV and up to the TeV regime with improved resolution, the Fermi Observatory can operate for many more years to respond to fundamental questions of modern particle astrophysics.
